Halloween Costumes

I am still looking at Halloween costumes!  Isn’t that guy scary?

I found this video of 100 years of Halloween costumes.  I thought that they were pretty neat.  I remember some of these costumes from growing up.  Ah the memories!

Do you know why we started Halloween costumes?  The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. People use to believe that ghosts came back to the earthly world on All Hallow’s Eve( Halloween.   People were afraid that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits.

Nowadays, Halloween is just a day to have fun and get all kinds o candy.  Yum!

Enjoy the video!
